Ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam is back with an action flick Chekka Chivantha Vaanam after a long time and the multi-starrer film has released today. And the name speaks for itself. The film has a stellar star cast ensemble cast of Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, Simbu, Jyotika, Aishwarya Rajesh, Aditi Rao Hydari, Arun Vijay, Prakash Raj, Thyagarajan, Jayasudha and newbie Dayana which is another reason why people are flocking to watch it on the big screen. Not just fans, even critics are praising the film.
M Suganth of Times of India gave the film 3.5 stars and said, "If the initial set up of Chekka Chivantha Vaanam instantly reminds you of The Godfather, you are not wrong. And it is intentional. But it is only as the plot unfolds that you realise that Mani Ratnam is giving a delicious twist to the classic gangster tale. The first half, in particular, is structured as a whodunit, with every scene ending up as a means to keep throwing up the question that drives the plot – who plotted Senapathy’s murder?"
Even the IndiaGlitz team gave it 3.5 stars and stated, "What works the best in 'Chekka Chivantha Vaanam' is the perfect casting and each time the brilliant cast get together in the frame it is sheer magic. As promised the most remarkable aspect of the film is the climax twist that few would have seen coming in the way it does. The theme of the mistakes of the parents affecting their children in many ways even leading them to their deaths is driven home with precision. A Mani Ratnam film usually hinges on the technical excellence but this time it is the actors who rise above even the script which is flimsy to begin with. Go for this brilliantly acted and crafted gangster saga that will mesmerize you."
Since Mani Ratnam's last film Kaatru Veliyidai failed at the box office, the audience is expecting the ace filmmaker to bounce back with this project. The film is produced under the banners of Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions. The music of the film is given by AR Rahman, while the cinematography is handled by Santosh Sivan.
